Man murdered in Jaunpur

Sunday, 29 March 2020 | PNS | Lucknow

A middle-aged man was found murdered under mysterious circumstances in Jaunpur on Saturday morning.
The victim’s kin suspect the hand of a local petrol pump manager in the murder and have named him in the FIR lodged in this connection. The body was sent for autopsy and further investigations were on.
As per reports, Ramnath Sharma (50) of Sarai Mohamedeenpur in Jaunpur went missing on Friday evening after he went out telling his family that he was going out for work. The family members tried on their own to search him but failed.
On Saturday morning, a passer-by spotted the body of an unknown man lying near the boundary of a petrol pump, barely 100 metres from Sharma’s house.
Later, Sharma’s family members rushed there and identified the body and later informed the police about it.
There were injury marks on the head and back, suggesting that the victim was attacked with some blunt object.
Suspecting the role of the petrol pump manager in the murder, the victim’s kin lodged a report against him.
The police were investigating the case.
Meanwhile in Jhansi, a daily wager killed his wife and later hanged himself in his shanty on Saturday morning.
The couple is survived by six children.
Lakhan Kushwaha of Khilera hamlet of Mauranipur (Jhansi) used to live with his wife Rampyari and six children in a house in the city. He worked as a labourer to eke out a living but due to the lockdown he was unable to get work and failed to purchase essential commodities.
On Saturday morning, he had a tiff with his wife when the latter asked him get some food.
Upset with the situation, Lakhan suddenly took an iron rod and hit his wife on her head as a result of which she died on the spot. Later, he hanged himself from the ceiling of the room. When his children saw his body hanging, they raised an alarm after which the neighbours rushed in and called the police.
The police sent the bodies for autopsy.
